Beginning on Sunday 6/14, when I download a PDF file and then try to print, multiple tabs start opening. Some times have 50 tabs opening before I can stop it.

You get tabs opening endlessly if you select Firefox as the application to handle a file when you get an "Open with" dialog.

You need to set the action for Portable Document Format (PDF) to "Open in Firefox".
